The European Union on Wednesday committed to be “creative" in the final stages of the Brexit trade negotiations but warned that whatever deal emerges, the United Kingdom will be reduced to “just a valued partner" far removed from its former membership status.

Temperature checks in Japan, a disinfectant tunnel in Israel, and timed entry in Australia. These are just a few of the ways sports venues around the world are adjusting their businesses in pandemic times. As fans trickle back into stadiums, tech companies have stepped in to help create safer environments for them. Kim Damron is the President and CEO of an analytics company called Paciolan: "The one thing we're seeing now is whether you are the Olympics, college football or the NBA, we're all working twenty times harder to get fans in and the fans want to be there so I do feel more optimistic than I have as these events continue to add fans." Paciolan provides fans with contactless tickets, interactive seat maps and 'pod' ticketing which allows groups of two, four, or six to purchase seating socially distanced from other spectators. "We have been identified at the top of many leagues in Australia and America as a resurgence comeback technology that allows for fans to feel more comfortable as they re-enter the sports industry after Covid in this new normal." Zachary Klima is one the founders of WaitTime an artificial intelligence mobile app developed to help fans know where the longest lines are around a stadium. Cameras throughout a venue send real-time information to operators who can track and then respond to unsafe overcrowding of fans. "It's not just about finding the shortest line. These are risk zones. So what used to be a long line is now a COVID risk zone," Klima said. Another company working to make watching live sports safer is Populous. The architectural design firm is working with an NBA team in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to create safe, socially-distanced spaces for fans to gather. It plans to use shipping containers to host small bubbles of friends who will be able to order food and drink to their pod. With the Olympic games set for 2021 and COVID-19 infections on the rise in many countries around the world, Olympics organizers have yet to decide whether to allow spectators into venues next year and if so, how many.

New Year travel could be saved with daily testing replacing quarantine Can I go on holiday after lockdown? Travel bosses warn that cutting quarantine will not save the industry How to get a Covid test for your holiday Sign up to the Telegraph Travel newsletter The Government is planning to make business travellers and foreign tour groups exempt from quarantine measures by early 2021, according to reports. The Global Travel Taskforce, headed up by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps and Health Secretary Matt Hancock, is considering a policy whereby business travellers visiting the UK for up to three days will be able to forego self-isolation. However, it is understood that these visitors would be prevented from socialising, or any other “non-business related activity”. The taskforce is also considering “tour bubbles”, allowing groups of inbound tourists to avoid quarantine so long as they avoid public transport and stay together during the trip, in what could be a major boost for the UK's tourism sector. This comes a day after Grant Shapps announced quarantine would be reduced from 14 days to 5, if you take a test on the fifth day after arrival into the UK. Scroll down for more updates.
From fast food to fine dining, some restaurants in Britain are relying on home kits to keep them afloat during lockdown, turning clients into cooks who recreate favourite meals in the comfort of their own kitchens.

The venue has been closed since the first lockdown in March, because seating is around a kitchen table so social distancing is not possible.
